Whirling Dervishes of Rumi
The Whirling Dervishes of Rumi finished up their South Carolina Performances with their last performance held at Furman University's McAlister Auditorium on March 14th. They performed in Columbia on March 11th and in Charleston on March 13th.
It was a great evening with a great turnout, over 1,200 people attended in three cities, for such a wonderful performance of Sufi Music, Calligraphy and the Whirling Dervishes.
The program started out with a beautiful performance of Sufi Music...
Then the audience was wowed by the onstage performance of My Aydin Cadir's Calligraphy. The beautiful Rumi quotes he made come to life on stage for everyone was a true delight to experience. Many attendees left with pieces of his work for their home.
The Informational Video explaining the Whirling Dervishes shared a behind the scenes understanding of the meaning of their dance, their robes, hats and an in-depth discovery of Rumi and his teachings. Watching the Dervishes perform to the musical movements, each with a distinct rhythm, bring to life Rumi's teachings and way of being right before your eyes. A great reminder to all just to LOVE
The events ended with five lucky audience members receiving a special prizes.
